For those who know me, KNOW I suffer with allergies. I have tubes in my ears. I tried to fight it this time.....but ended up at urgent care for almost three hours on Saturday just to get some amoxicillan. However, my ear is doing a lot better and I am not so loopy headed...lol. I have finally had a chance to work on this month's DD/DDA September Challenge. The challenge.....Create a NO LAYER card any size, any color. Your card base is it - no additional layers of cardstock or designer paper at all. Required Element: Masking - use masking or reverse masking in some way to create your design.Restricted Element: No use of the color pink (any shade) Ribbon and sentiment embellishments were allowed so I did used an oval punch for my sentiment. I used ONLY Stampin Up product for this card. The grid sheet really helped. I marked off my card dimensions and cut out size from grid paper. I then marked off the part of the center I wanted to tear out. I used the postive and negative portions of my homemade center to make this card. I used very vanilla cardstock-so saffron, close to cocoa, and black staz on ink-large oval punch, chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, sponges, adhesive remover.
